The Summer League rolls on against the Cavs. And that means more Zhou Qi.

Tonight the Houston Rockets continue Summer League play against the Cleveland Cavaliers. With an impressive start to his career, Zhou Qi will look to add to his 17 points and 6 rebound debut. Troy Williams also had an impressive start by scoring 29 points against Denver. Certainly a great start to someone who wants to be a regular in the rotation.

Another player looking to crack next season’s rotation will be Chinanu Onuaku. The Rockets will be looking to add a third center to the rotation. Onuaku will certainly be looking to be that third center.

In the previous game, Zhou displayed a nice balance of offense and defense. While he still has some work to do, this game will help his growth. With more experience, he will no doubt improve.

Others looking to impress the Houston Rockets.

Look for more Isaiah Hartenstein tonight. This year’s Summer League may be the only sample we see for a while. He will look to make his impact as a big man who can stretch the floor in the future for the Houston Rockets in the future.

One player to also keep an eye on will be guard Ray McCallum. He has shown promise in the past with Sacramento and San Antonio and will look to be the third point guard on the roster. The summer league will give him an opportunity to improve his three point shot and make his name for the Rockets.

It has been a good start for some of the Houston Rockets and their young players. They should only get better from here. Tonight’s game will be at 9 p.m. on ESPNU.
